To view the rest of the photos (101 photos), visit my flickr slideshow, or thumbnails.

On March 27th, we held a dinner party in Kamakura, an old Castle town (1192, AD) in Kanagawa.  It was such a joy for me to see my loved-ones dressed nicely, and spending some quality time together.  Thank you all for coming, I love you and miss you!  Special thanks to Mike Nogami, for coming from NYC and taking fantastic photographs.

五時のおやつ: 坂本風大学いも


揚げずにカリッと炒めたお芋に煎った黒ごま、メープルシロップ、最後にレモン汁を絞る。

手順:サツマイモの細切りに少し塩をしてレンジで2分。その間に黒ごまをフライパンで軽く煎っておく。煎ったごまを皿に取り出して、フライパンにバターを溶かす。チンしたお芋を強火でかりっと焦げ目がつくまで焼く。最後にメープルシロップとレモン汁、ごまを絡めて出来上がり。頂き物の川根茶と一緒に食す。ああ、幸せ。

ポイント:かりっと炒め焼きをするのと、ごまを煎ること。

Daigaku-imo (literally meaning University potatoes)
This is a modified-version of traditional Japanese sweets.

Cut Japanese yam potato into sticks. Microwave them for 2 mins. Toast black sesames on frying pan till you smell the sesame. Empty the sesame out of pan, melt butter in a pan, saute potatoes till crispy outside. Blend black sesames into potatoes, drizzle maple syrup, sprinkle dash of lemon juice at the end.
